gwt-maven-archetypes

This project contains Maven archetypes for modular GWT projects.

How to use

Generate a project

mvn archetype:generate \
   -DarchetypeGroupId=net.ltgt.gwt.archetypes \
   -DarchetypeVersion=LATEST \
   -DarchetypeArtifactId=

where the available

 are:

  • modular-webapp
  • modular-requestfactory
  • dagger-guice-rf-activities

This should use the latest release from the Central Repository. Alternatively, and/or if you want to hack on / contribute to the archetypes, you can clone and install the project locally:

git clone https://github.com/tbroyer/gwt-maven-archetypes.git
cd gwt-maven-archetypes && mvn clean install

You'll then use the

mvn archetype:generate
command from above, except for the
-DarchetypeVersion
argument which you'll replace with
HEAD-SNAPSHOT
.

Start the development mode

Change directory to your generated project and issue the following commands:

  1. In one terminal window:
    mvn gwt:codeserver -pl *-client -am
  2. In another terminal window:
    mvn jetty:run -pl *-server -am -Denv=dev

Or if you'd rather use Tomcat than Jetty, use

mvn tomcat7:run
instead of
mvn jetty:run
.

Note that the

-pl
and
-am
are not strictly necessary, they just tell Maven not to build the client module when you're dealing with the server one, and vice versa.

Profiles

There's a special profile defined in the POM file of server modules:

env-dev
, which is used only when developping. It configures the Jetty and Tomcat plugins and removes the dependency on the client module (declared in the
env-prod
profile, active by default.)

To activate the

env-dev
profile you can provide the
-Denv=dev
system property, or use
-Penv-dev
.

Compatibility

To use variable interpolation in parameters during

mvn archetype:generate
, you need at least version 2.2 of the maven-archetype-plugin. Archetypes use
${module.toLowerCase()}
as the default value for the
module-short-name
parameter, so if you don't use version 2.2 or above of the maven-archetype-plugin, make sure you provide a value and do not use the default one for that parameter. You can also make sure you use version 2.2 of the plugin by using
mvn
org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.2:generate
instead of
mvn
archetype:generate
. It should be noted that variable interpolation also does not work in M2Eclipse's wizard, despite using recent versions of Maven thus (probably) a recent-enough version of the maven-archetype-plugin.
